Posted on September 18th, 2017

Settling into your new home is one of the best feelings. The stress of the move is over, your boxes are unpacked and it’s time to put your feet up and enjoy a good cuppa.

The coffee table is the perfect place to put down your brew, whilst you bask in your new living room.

However, whilst a coffee table needs to be practical, it can also be much, much more.

Your coffee table is a piece of furniture that will be used every day, whether it’s for drinks, keys, phones or flowers, it can provide a stunning focal point for your room as well as acting as a safe haven for the inevitable living room clutter.

From rustic to modern, practical to expressions of modern art, these days your options are seemingly endless when it comes to coffee tables.

Whether you’re looking for a functional or fancy piece to add the finishing touches to your living room, our top 5 list of coffee tables will cater for even the most eclectically styled lounge.

1. Bahia Table by Maisons Du Monde

Hailing from France, Maison Du Monde knows a thing or two about style, and they have created a minimalistic masterpiece with the Bahia Table.

Created from strips of reclaimed wood salvaged from houses in India, the Bahia table is both stylish and sustainably produced.

It’s ideal for adding a pop of colour to your living room and would fit in perfectly with the modern design of The Mottram, a 5 bedroom Seddon Home.

2. Corona Pine Coffee Table

This may be one of the cheapest tables that made our list, but it certainly doesn’t compromise on aesthetics.

As the name suggests, the table is crafted from high-quality pine and then stained to give it a rustic finish which wouldn’t look out of place in a Mexican villa.

Its wide table top makes it an ideal table for families and is perfect for your drinks, newspapers and books.

As well as a generous surface area, the Corona also has an inbuilt drawer that acts as the ideal hideaway for burying your clutter when you’re showing off your new home to guests.

The table is also protected against any spills thanks to its hand-waxed finish, which also brings out the colour in the pine’s rich grain.

If you’re looking to add a touch of rustic charm and you’re on a budget after your house move, then the Corona Pine Coffee Table is definitely worth considering.

3. Orrico Coffee Table by Habitat

If you’re looking to make a statement with your coffee table then the Orrico ticks all the boxes.

The Orrico is a collection collated by furniture specialists Habitat and it has a real exotic feel.

The table comes as pictured in rose gold, but it is also available in silver and gold too.

Despite its heavy appearance, the table is relatively light thanks to its aluminum frame, making it ideal for those who like to keep things fresh by moving their furniture around.

Each Orrico coffee table is unique, and the texture is created by hundreds of tiny hammer marks that are created during the manufacturing process.

Whilst the Oricco is undeniably visually striking, it may not be your cup of tea if you’re not a fan of housework.

The metallic surface will require regular dusting and has a tendency to scratch easily, so if you’re a fan of throwing your keys on the table when you get in from work, this might not be the table for you.

With its single piece design, there’s no joints or fixings, once it’s delivered, it’s good to go.

It’s also easy to keep clean and looking pristine, making it a good all-round piece of furniture that can suit a variety of households.

The final addition to our list is the Lunja Coffee Table.

You’d be excused for thinking that we’ve added a chest of drawers to this list by mistake, but rest assured this is a coffee table.

If you’re looking for a classically styled table packed with storage opportunities then La Redoute‘s Lunja Coffee Table is perfect.

The table has 4 generously sized drawers and is finished with a teak stain, before being hand waxed to give it a glazed finish and traditional feel.

The antique style handles help to add character, whilst the solid pine base should mean the table stands firm for years to come.
